I Did It


Thursday, March 14, 2013

After two weeks of blowing off the gym, I went back tonight. I hate to sound sappy, but it was like visiting an old friend. When I walked in the door, the older couple that are there most nights greeted me with so much enthusiasm, I felt bad for missing so much.

I felt, 110%, like I was where I needed to be. And you know what? I had a GREAT workout and I feel so much better! A lot of the stress and worries I've been carrying around with me over the past two weeks seem to be lighter. I missed sweating, I missed pushing, I missed it all.

So for those of you that have been in a rut (and from the comments on my last few blogs, I know there are a lot of you), kick yourself in the rear and get back to it. It's completely and totally worth it.

    emoticon CONGRATULATIONS on a Great Workout!! The thing I miss the most at the Gym is the Friendliness of the Ladies at Curves. I am going to a New Gym (Curves Closed Here) and it is OK, but very few people Speak or even make Eye Contact.

    Most the trouble with exercising is just getting down there to do it. Once we start- Whoo hoo!

    Almost makes me feel sad that I cancelled my gym membership as of the end of the month! Really glad you got back in there and are enjoying all the benefits of a great workout. Keep it up!
